Inheritance Tax Accountant in the United Kingdom: A Comprehensive Overview

Welcome to IPA GROUP, where we offer expert guidance on navigating the intricacies of Inheritance Tax in the United Kingdom.

Understanding Inheritance Tax:

In the landscape of UK taxation, the inheritance tax (IHT) plays a significant role, impacting the estates of individuals posthumously. This tax is levied on the cumulative value of assets, properties, and possessions left behind by the deceased.

*Key Considerations:*

  1. Thresholds: As of 2024, the standard Inheritance Tax threshold stands at £325,000. Estates surpassing this limit face a 40% tax on the exceeding amount.
  2. Residence Nil Rate Band (RNRB): An additional allowance of £175,000 is applicable when passing on a property to direct descendants, offering potential tax relief.
  3. Exempt Transfers: Certain transfers, such as those to spouses or civil partners, are generally exempt from Inheritance Tax. Charitable donations may also qualify for exemption or reduced rates.
  4. Lifetime Gifts: Gifts made within seven years before the individual's passing may incur Inheritance Tax, with a "taper relief" scale applied to the taxable amount.
